Winter is coming, and finding that one jacket is sometimes difficult. My choice for the extreme Scandinavian winter is the Hummel J Down Jacket with fur. The most difficult thing is to find a jacket that does not make you look like a five year old wearing some ill fitting piece of clothing. Try to keep it classic and still with some edge to it.

As most of you guys know, I basically only wear Orlebar Brown when I go to the beach. It doesn't matter if it is in Scandinavia or in the Maldives. So where do I get my OB from? Well everyones favourite shop...Mr Porter.
In the spirit of Mr Porter À La Plage, I headed out to the beach outside Helsingborg. This super secluded part of my hometown was perfect for relaxing and I had the perfect beach kit with me. Bulldog Mid-Length Printed Swim Shorts, Bobby Lightweight Cotton T-Shirt, Baron Cotton-Piqué Beach Towel and a beach bag packed with the second volume of the Mr Porter Paperback, Persol glasses, and other small goodies both from Mr Porter and Orlebar Brown.
Summer is still here and if you don't have something from Orlebar Brown, then go get some. It will make you look stylish at the beach.
A Danish sportswear brand, Japanese designer, set in a museum designed by B.I.G. and one of the directors, Dan Bjerg, is the only Karma Developer in the world. The result, a video campaign that defines the closeness between Japanese and Scandinavian design and culture.

Summer is still here and will be for at least another month, even if all the A/W14 collections has already started to hit our favorite stores. I have a big issue and that is to let go of the summer style, because, A/W in Scandinavia can be quite shitty and harsh, and it is very difficult to dress nicely when it hits below 10 degrees Celsius. Two winters ago I swear that I saw a penguin cruising around on the ice on the Oresund Straight, but the cold could have possibly made me delusional.
But let's not think about snow, ice and winter, instead let us enjoy summer. Mr Porter made this brilliant video of all of the most stylish men that attended Milan S/S15 Fashion Week during this summer, and I can tell you that it certainly put a smile on my face.
